The Facilities

Top:  These china vessels were on the top shelf inside an open closet-type space upstairs in the Petit Trianon.  As we passed by them, I heard Elissa point them out to our guide as containers that the Court ladies slipped under their hoop skirts when Mass (or other activities that required attendance and attention) went too long without a bathroom break.

Center:  Petit Trianon bath tub

Bottom:  One of several varieties of toilet
